... the canoes we started our hike through the jungle. Just down the river from where we got off the canoes we spotted a mother crocodile watching two of her babies swimming in the river. I was seriously only 12 feet away from a crocodile that was continuously staring at us. Sometimes the croc would move forward quickly towards us about a foot. Cassidy and I were the only ones who would silently scream and sprint away thinking we were about to be her breakfast. Our hike ...
... that more bugs came into the room sheltering from the outside! We jumped in another safari truck and drove for a few hours in the park and then back to our original hotel just outside the park. The rest of the day was free to do as we wish. A group of us had lunch by the river and saw an elephant walk into the water. We went over to see closer up and the elephant was taking a bath in the river! Right in front of us. It was ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsRhino Lodge and Hotel Sauraha
I had the pleasure of staying at Rhino Lodge, 2 different times and both times I had clean decent but basic rooms. One downfall is that power and hot water are hit and miss but you can work around it. All the staff are pleasant and helpful. All meals I had were delicious. The location is great as it banks on the river and it is right in the little town where you can wander for shopping or a drink,
